    Thanks for replies everyone. I'd invite some of them to go but its elderly parents in late 60s and early 70s. Dad can't walk good let alone hike he needs a walker.

    IF they are OK with email, then a PLB (Garmin Mini in my case) is the way to go. I have three presets. "Starting here, everything is fine, no reply needed", "Stopping here, everything is fine, no reply needed" and.....I forget the third. My wife gets them and she knows she certainly MAY reply but not really needed. She gets the email to her work, can click on the link to the exact location where I'm spending the night. She really did go from "Wait...no....going alone....no cell coverage if you get hurt...." to "OH! Look, I know right where you will be! HAVE FUN!!". She wasn't onboard with me going solo until she'd actually seen the emails she would be getting.

    Just tell them to watch walk in woods and chill
    And if they feel the need for the AT experience there's lots of areas HC accessible.
    Believe me your trip here will be your most dangerous part of your adventure.

    Especially if you ride Greyhound. Although you would get to hear a lot of prison stories even though all your fellow passengers were "innocent ".
